- By: Aleks Krotoski
- Length: 2 hrs and 5 mins
- Original Recording
What is social media doing to our brains? How can we make sure smartphones don't affect our health? How do we overcome jealousy, cyberbullying and the ever present FOMO? These are some of the questions that social psychologist Aleks Krotoski addresses in this series aimed at teenagers and their parents. She delivers the latest science about screentime to help you make the right decisions about how much, or how little, to use technology in your life.
Good general introduction

As a mature woman struggling with screen time, I was extremely disappointed by this content which we've heard in the medias time and time again. Nothing new here. The focus is mainly on teenagers which is another cliché. It would have been such a better idea to look at those of us who didn't grow up with the internet and who are struggling. My 18-year-old is able to master his screen time, he's not the one who needs help. Thankfully, Cal Newport's new book, Digital Minimalism, has just come out. He tackles the real issues with his usual rigorous approach. Please Audible, don't waste our time with superficial work that looks like an in-depth study!

Your Spacious Self
- Clear the Clutter and Discover Who You Are
- By: Stephanie Bennett Vogt MA
- Narrated by: Laural Merlington
- Length: 7 hrs and 27 mins
Behind our stress, clutter, and confusion is an infinitely spacious place one might call stillness or joy. This is our natural state of being, but we usually don’t experience it, because we are caught in a web of material possessions, desires, and fears. Our clutter often becomes another member of the family that we feed, house, and lug around. In Your Spacious Self, author and professional space clearing expert Stephanie Bennett Vogt shows us that it’s not our stuff but the holding on to it that creates a force field of stuck-ness that clouds our perceptions and paralyzes our lives.

Decluttering in a different light
This book is a great book to get your mind into gear when you want to declutter, Be warned, it doesn't give you a method to declutter as such but it does a beautiful job at helping you declutter your brain and lose a lot of the guilt attached to clutter,
